Double Spiral: The Sculptural Art of Hoshino Kayoko and Hoshino Satoru
Joan B Mirviss LTD presents Double Spiral: The Sculptural Art of Hoshino Kayoko and Satoru, from May 1 through June 15, 2018. Our second exhibition, devoted exclusively to new material by this celebrated couple, includes over thirty works created specifically for this show. The title, Double Spiral, references not only their dual careers but also the intertwining of the spiritual and physical worlds and the balance between opposites as represented by the yin-yang symbol (taikyokuzu). As Hoshino Satoru's sculpted clay forms literally spiral upward with a powerful sense of fluidity and seductive tactility, Kayoko's work maintains a more austere appearance, twisting and turning as their faceted surfaces rotate. Both have repeatedly stated that it is the nature of clay and the interaction with human expression that leads them to their unscripted symbiotic confrontation, allowing the push and pull with the clay to lead to its own outcome.
